    70 yards with an unsighted inaccurate scope. I shot a shotgun shell off a piece of wood. Probably just dumb luck.

    I wont even say because y'all wouldn't believe it, even though I claim more luck than skill for the particular shot in question. Hell it was nothing but luck, no skill was in the equation at that range at all. Period.

    Oh heck with it, approx 300 yard on a squirrel, with a sear's revelation (I think it's the same as a Marlin 60) Iron sights.

    26 yds, clipped the head off a ruffed grouse, on the wing, hip shot, one handed, 22 Llama, one round, WITH WITNESSES- including my son who was 13- and impressed as all get out! :D

    Cool- making that shot.

    Incredibly cool- as bird hits ground with a KERFLUMPH, saying "Hold up son- let's see if there is another one in there...."

    more dumb luck than anything else

    It's always great to impress your son. Father son moments are never forgotten. This is exactly want America needs more of. Too many kids stay inside playing video games instead of hunting or fishing.

    Head shot, squirrel, 75 yards, from standing position.

    Nylon 66, .22LR, iron sights, no sling.

    Critter dropped like a rock, didn't even twitch.

    Of course, this was back before the earth's crust

    cooled, when I could still see that far...

    At the range, whopping 75 FEET
    Me "did you see where that one hit"
    Wife "think you missed the target"
    Me "thank you for your vote of confidence"

    No wonder I didn't see where it hit, dead center in the black, and with the black back stop...

    I took two squirrels out of a tree top at 100 yards. One shot each and both head shots.
    I hunt with a target rifle and match ammo and have a 6x24-50 scope on it so it's not quite as impressive as some of the others posted here.

    800 yards, with a Calico M-100 carbine...since I had 100-rds per mag, I was walking shots into a patch of rotten pumpkins at the farm...
    Made a nice feast for the bugs & birds & critters :)

    Sitting on one hill and firing over to the valley...making little dust puffs...or orange bloops :D

    hog's back at 250 yards with iron sights after cataract surgery. :D
